Small Garden Story
Over some 15 + years, I have been photographing the evolution of my small (85 x 15 foot) garden and it seems a waste not to put these records into some sort of context. Beginning here in April 2010 this Blog is intended to both act as a diary and to share past and present successes (and some failures), pleasures and disappointments with fellow garden-lovers. In due course, I intend to fill in some of the background and early days but that will have to wait until the winter months!

We have had a pretty foul winter which is part of my excuse for neglecting my blog. Apologies! Happy to say I have not neglected the garden. Just now I'm delighted with a smart new fence, a nice soft dark brown, quite unlike the rather raw-looking orangey hue they used to be when new. Getting rid of two vastly over-grown ivies which were helping tear it to pieces has given me a lot more room too. I am busy researching climbers and looking back to see what has succeeded in previous years. Today though I just wanted to share this close-up from my exhibition "Garden Enigmas" of 2005 which has just been nominated in this year's Black and White Spider Awards. Personally I think the poppy seed head was much more powerful but then I'm not judging!
